About this sight

Located in Yahiko, this cycling stadium holds pari-mutuel Keirin racing, a form of motor-paced cycle racing. This Japanese-born sport is included in the Olympic Games, and one of Japan's four authorized "Public Sports" where gambling is permitted. Yahiko's oval has a circumference of 400 meters. A typical keirin race of 2,025 meters consists of five laps around the course. In the last straight of the course, top-class cyclists can reach speeds up to 70 km/h. Races are held from April to November.
